Intervention Level

They intervene to close the gap of poverty by providing educational support

  • Tertiary Applications

  • Financial assistance for school uniforms

Other programs include:

  • A charity shop, to provide both funding and necessities for scholars and students.
  • Providing a hall for community events
  • The establishment of a Girls Academy with emphasis on gender equality and education for girls, something that is frequently overlooked in a paternalistic society.

Creseldah Ndlovu is no stranger to hardship. She was born to a single parent family in a small rural village and at the age of 16 took on the role of parent to her siblings as her mother’s work only made it possible for her to come home every 3 months. While Creseldah doesn’t turn people away based on age or gender, her main focus is on child-headed households where support for teen mothers of siblings is critical.

We have been humbled by her work and are honoured to be able to assist her in her endeavours. We have been supporting her projects for many years now and will continue to do so. She not only makes us very proud but has a great impact on the lives of so many vulnerable youth in the villages surrounding the Kruger Park.
